Daily Lift #905

Anger Is Only For Show

Maimonides wrote that the correct path is "moderation in all character traits."

As regards to anger, he writes: "Do not be hot-tempered and easy to anger, nor like a corpse without feelings. Rather show anger only over important matters in order to prevent others from behaving wrongly on future occasions... Even when you have a practical, constructive reason for getting angry, only appear as if you are angry, but inwardly remain calm."

(Hilchos Daios 1:4, 2:3; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.185)
